Kane's excellent new thriller is broken into two parts: the seriously twisted reasoning of a madman and the methodical procedural hunt to stop him. The forensic details are fascinating and the characters believable. Kane has hit a new level with this intense thriller!
Penny Truman disappeared a year ago without a trace, and the agent in charge of the now-cold case is Derek Parker, Sloane's ex-lover. As Sloane pores over the clues, she discovers a disturbing fact: Penny is not the only woman to have disappeared. Suddenly the missing-person case has turned into serial kidnappings, with the fate of the women unknown. Connecting the dots leads to a disturbing conclusion: All the women had a connection to Sloane ... is she this madman's final target? (MORROW, Apr., 336 pp., $23.95)
